As history tells us, it was the Egyptians who first developed beer. It was not men, but Egyptian women, who were crafting the beer.
And for that, we thank these ladies.
Fast forward to 2017 and we now find the beer industry heavily dominated by men. Although there are still women brewers out there, according to a 2014 study by Stanford University, of 1700 polled breweries, only 4% had female head brewers.
Not a great showing ladies.
